Changing Lives. Changing the World.

Due to inclement weather the Christian Life Center is closed today, November 12.

Scheduled programs in the Christian Life Center and ministries for children, youth and parent groups are cancelled when Birmingham Schools close due to inclement weather.

Worship With Us


Embracing the example of Jesus, we welcome you here with hearts that know no boundaries of age, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, or economic circumstance.

Join us as we worship together, study and grow together and share God’s love serving in the local, national and global community.

Generosity Campaign

Taking the Next Steps is the title for this year’s stewardship campaign for the 2020 ministry support of Birmingham and Berkley First. The focus of Taking the Next Steps is on our need as a follower of Jesus to give rather than the church’s need to get. Based on biblical principles, this campaign will invite each person to pray, “Lord, where would you want me to be in my giving?” as we seek to grow in our life of discipleship.

A Message From Pastor Elbert

Taking the Next Steps

Advent by Candlelight

December 2 & 3

An evening of worship, music, dessert and fellowship shared with the women of our church and community. Sign up to host and decorate a table for your guests, or sign up to join our community table and be our guest. 

Journey Groups

Journey Groups are small gatherings of people who are living life and exploring faith together. They are vital to our growth as followers of Jesus. Find a Journey group that meets your needs.


FORWARD is the name of the planning process through which we are discerning the God desired future for our life together. The FORWARD planning process was initiated by Compass in the winter of 2017. The FORWARD planning team was recruited by Compass in the spring of 2017 and given the task of discerning God’s future for Birmingham First and Berkley First.
